Status: draft

Government agency representatives, municipal analysts and investors, software providers, and other users of state and local government data are invited to review and comment on the data standards developed to represent sections of the Consolidated Annual Financial Report (CAFR).

This is a revised Demonstration Release (Version 0.2), to illustrate how data standards can be created and used in the municipal marketplace. The standards and taxonomy versions were developed by the XBRL US State and Local Government Disclosure Modernization Working Group as a pilot to test the premise that standards can improve efficiencies by automating the process of creating, collecting, and analyzing government data. The Working Group solicited feedback on the initial Demonstration release during a 60-day public review period that ended on March 18, 2019. Input received has been incorporated into this second release of the CAFR Demonstration Taxonomy.
